Déjà Vu: The Little Caesars Player of the Week – Carter White

5 months ago Andrew Luberda 0

County Line Preps is pleased to have a sponsorship agreement with specific Little Caesars locations in Queen Creek and Coolidge.

Little Caesars, home of the Hot-‘N-Ready pizza, will sponsor the Player of the Week and Player of the Month awards as part of our agreement.

Each week, CountyLinePreps.com will announce the Player of the Week, accompanied by a Q&A with that week’s winner.

The Player of the Week will receive a gift certificate, redeemable for a two-liter bottle of soda, a pepperoni or cheese pizza, and an order of Crazy Bread, that will be honored at one of the two aforementioned Little Caesars locations.

Additionally, the Player of the Week automatically qualifies for the Player of the Month Award, which will be determined by a poll that will be posted on our County Line Preps Twitter account during the final week each month.

The Player of the Month will receive a plaque and a $25 Little Caesars gift card.

Now that we’ve provided details of both awards, we are pleased to announce this week’s Little Caesars Player of Week:

Carter White

Poston Butte – Senior

6’ 210

 If you have a sense of déjà vu it’s understandable.

White is now a two-time Little Caesars Player of the Week following his seven-touchdown performance on Oct. 20 at Cholla, where he ran for four touchdowns and passed for three more in the Broncos’ 59 – 39 victory over the Chargers.

Carter earned his first POTW honor after leading a come-from-behind victory versus Vista Grande on Homecoming back in September.

Below is a portion of his original Q&A:

County Line Preps:  You’ve been a three-year varsity starter at Poston Butte and excelled at several different positions. How are you able to perform at such a high level at each?

Carter White (24).

Carter White:  Being a three-year starter is great. I have created a special bond with the coaches and it’s easy to communicate to them. I’ve been working my butt off to be in this position. Not only in the weight room and on the field but also in the classroom.

CLP:  What are your plans after graduation?

CW:  After graduation the plan is to play college football. I’m working very hard to get some looks and offers. But we will just have to wait and see, but the plan is to play more football.

CLP:  What is your greatest athletic memory at Poston Butte?

CW:  My greatest Poston Butte athletic memory would have to be last year when I received First-Team All-Region for tight end. It was a very special moment for me and my parents were so proud. It boosted my confidence and I felt really good about it.

CLP:  What is your favorite sports movie and why?

CW:  Favorite sports movie would either be The Sandlot or The Longest Yard, but The Sandlot has the edge. I used to watch that movie on every road trip like three to four times. It’s just a great movie that has good comedy but good lessons in it as well. I love it.

CLP:  Name one person you’d most like to meet and why?

CW:  If I had the chance to meet anyone it would be Alessia Cara or Odell Beckham. They both are very talented and it would be cool to meet them. I like her voice, it sounds good. And Odell, how could you not like him? He is a beast on the field and he backs up what he talks. I love watching him play.
